The Greatest Story Never Told
A narrator walks on stage to discover a storybook that has NO TEXT and learns that the actors scheduled to perform the story are stuck in traffic! The ONLY answer to this problem:
Have kids from the audience volunteer to go on stage and become characters in THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD!
Kids and professional adult improvisers throw on silly costumes and create a 45-60 minute story based on audience suggestions.
After the show, a design team transforms the original improvised story into a purchasable digital and physical storybook.
It is the goal to get EVERY child that wants to perform a chance to be on stage at some point in the show. There is no forced participation. This is an all ages show particularly great for ages 4-14. Children age 2 and younger are FREE.
